The second full-fledged alum that I hosted with my project Pony Family is out now, and this exclusive from Skyshard & Friends is just SO wholesome and like the kind of pony music we miss, I just had to have it as the opener!! I hope that you will enjoy this trip to Equestria! And do check out the rest of the album that is filled with pony emotions! Find it on Bandcamp here! Links to all the musicians who contributed in this song can be found in the description of the album on Bandcamp!
Nyancat380 continues building their “Methodic Ways to Break a Mind” album with this fantastic track! The song has an AMAZING groove thanks to its fusion of Latin instrumentation and EDM elements. It kicks off with the sounds of a crowded club before launching into a brisk beat and horns melody. Then it jumps into the main bass groove and the vocals (heck yeah for the awesome lyric video!), and all the accompanying percussion and effects build the arrangement beautifully. The call and response between the vocals and horns heading into the chorus really reinforces the awesome club vibe. Then a breakdown after the second verse pares the arrangement down to a bit of melody and spare percussion which sets up the eventual resumption of the vocals and horns beautifully. The “Cool AF Spin Scissor Solo!” (love the description) adds another dynamic element to the track, and Spin Scissor’s guitar supports the track to the end. The song is ridiculously groovy, dynamic, and polished, and I can’t wait for the rest of the album and pieces of the story! Bonus: there’s also an acapella version of the track if you want to get your remix on!
Who does not miss that unique style of the cool and old internet times? well, Inspired in the good glamour of SoGreatandPowerful’s PMVs, My best fella, SpinScissor delivered us this magnific and nostalgic track about the coolest pony in all of ponyville. You guessed it! Rainbow Dash. The track begins with some rhodes that for just a few moments, resemble the of so iconic main theme of the series, man, you know this gonna be epic. Then and suddenly, we hear some great vocal chops accompanied with cool and glitchy breaks and a gritty bassline. The whole track is a vibe, full with all kinds of wonders, some fresh piano chords and a truly beautiful message at the end from SpinScissor. Please, do not hesitate and listen to this 20% cooler song!
SpinScissor is no stranger to exploring characters’ psyches with their music, and this song is another fine example of what they can achieve when thus inspired! This amazing ambient track examines Twilight’s mental state when Principal Cinch forces her to join the school team in My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games. It must have been devastating for Twilight to have her academic future threatened, and you can hear her wrestling to keep things mentally compartmentalized here. The pulsing beat lends a wonderful “heart in the throat” vibe complimented by bits of vocal chops and distorted synths and ambience that swirls around the listener. There are also wonderful breaks with ambience and keys that give calm moments before the arrangement pulls the listener back into Twilight’s doubts. SpinScissor really nailed the ambient effects–they have a delightfully unsettling nature as they tinkle, buzz, and percolate through the song. The vocal chop melody toward the end of the song is so well done as well, and adding that more concrete element and then taking it away is a perfect touch.
Indubitably among the best and most emotional pony songs ever written in my eyes, char’s tribute released on the 10th anniversary of SGaP’s music is a commitment to the cultural preservation of such pony vocal chops-powered pieces of magic that call upon our Passion. With a progression reflecting Starlight’s character depth and a masterful composition that evokes emotion so well, the song is nothing short of breathtaking, and a gem you don’t want to sleep on!
Be yourself and make what you want to make! The advice I’ve always given to people has been followed by SpinScissor to the point of making a whole song about it, and that’s so wonderful! Read the description to hear the musician’s story and new resolve, and let it empower you as well along the creative instrumental, amazing vocals, and very lovely pony vocal chops!
Today we’ve got ourselves another great song by Sawtooth Waves which is once again paired with an amazing PMV by daspacepony. For this track they got the help of Vylet Pony, who provides the awesome lyrics. The track starts out with a lovely melody and then adds a drum loop with a background buildup that comprises the entire track buildup even though it’s just one sound and the rest stays the same. And for the drop we get treated to a little reference; the start is essentially an extended version of Sawtooth’s intro with some pitched background vocals by Vylet Pony. After that we return back to the normal melody and more lyrics by Vylet Pony, but this time it’s not pitched vocals anymore, and Vylet gives us more or less a partial cover of the show’s “You’ll Play Your Part” while the PMV changes the meaning from Twilight’s Part to Flurry’s Part. While all this happens we once more get the build up to another drop along with a more extended intro and the pitched background vocals, and we end on the last part of the original “You’ll play your part” show song. As I mentioned before this song has an entire PMV attached to it; daspacepony once again went all out on the visuals incorporating different things along with his animation including visualizers and lyrics being displayed throughout.

Drawing in an abundant and infinite source of inspiration, Direct Current is paying tribute to SGaP’s music all while expressing his lovely musical take at the concept stated in the description. The mellow instrumental, bright vocals and emotional pony vocal chops are all completing a frame filled with love! Also check out my comment on the song to find more love ♥
Polarhigh pops up every now and then with a new jam. Memories of Places You’ve Never Been is a fun instrumental with a lot of great composition going for it. The track utilizes a funky bass line throughout which keeps the energy and groove going. The song’s strongest asset is the creative use of so much instrumentation – it starts with high strings before adding in a synth, drums, and bass. Add in an ambient synth, mix it all together and you’ve got a fun, boppin’ soundtrack!
